I have 5k to spend on a new workstation this year.  I already have two monitors.  I would like suggestions as to which Workstations should I purchase and what features should it have for the best performance. I plan on making my purchase this month. I always like having two hard drives, one for the system files and one for file storage.  I do use EPDM and I know the importance of a great graphics card.  I will use windows 7 64 bit.  What other things should I have for max performance?  Our products are small  with less than 500 parts.  I currently have a Dell T3400, 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz, 3.25 GB RAM, running XP Pro SP3. 32 bit system.  Thanks for your comments in advance.
